Merlot 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%, Malbec 20%, Syrah 10%. 24 months in barrel. Definitely proud to have a winemaker like this in my hometown ! South West French wines are often to forgotten !

Not sure it's got the stuffing to stand up to the structure.

2011: The bret jumped out of the bottle like a smoky cartoon finger curled under your nose. Fortunately, the chunky dark fruit was able to carry it. Not an attention grabber or particularly complex, yet showing typicity, with the Syrah supplying a baseline of flavor, and also the lift it needed.

Rustic to a fault. I am not averse to a touch of Brett complexity, but this is over the top with the funk. Some nice depth of fruit beneath and completely resolved tannins.

A good lesson in why it's important to give wines time to open. Awkward upon opening, blossomed into complex spice, meat, & soft dark fruit.
